Apple’s laptop updates have seen considerable updates, but it appears that the tech giant wants to do more this year. According to reports, Apple is gearing up for something big with the MacBook lineup, and it’s nothing like what people have seen before.
MacBook Predictions from Kuo
Things are about to get shaken up as Apple is reportedly working on considerable plans for the MacBook lineup. According to new reports, Apple wants to provide the biggest update in history to the MacBook Pro line. Information came from reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Kuo’s most recent note to investors said that Apple wants to revamp the MacBook Pro line complete with Touch ID sensors and OLED display panel that will be positioned on top of the keyboard. The OLED display will be in place to replace the traditional function of the keys.
“While long overlooked, the MacBook line is the brightest spot for Apple’s 2016 rollouts. This is particularly true of the two new MacBook Pro models, to be introduced in 4Q16, as they will have a thinner and lighter form factor, Touch ID, use OLED display touch bar (to replace physical function keys, located above the keyboard) and adopt USB- C / Thunderbolt 3,” Kuo noted.
Biggest MacBook Update Ever
According to Yahoo, it should be interesting to find that Apple will implement the Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro, considering reports about the iPhone 7 incorporating an edge to edge display. The display will also offer an embedded home button and Touch ID sensor. As for other features, the MacBook Pro is expected to come with a thinner and lighter design. This is not so much a surprise as Apple was able to do it previously.
However, as with other Apple leaks and predictions, the features are not yet final. All information must be taken with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, experts seem to be talking about one thing: the upcoming Apple laptop upgrade that could be the “the most significant ever.” People are advised to wait for Apple’s final announcement.
